What is a live shot studio?
A “live shot” studio is a purpose built space designed to be ideal for live interviews with television stations and major television networks.  The usual scenario is the customary “joining us live from San Francisco …” interview segments you see on Sunday mornings or other talk shows.  An ideal facility is designed to be sufficiently quiet and appointed with the necessary equipment to reliably transmit the video signal to any major network or station (CNN, CNBC, ABC, etc).  A large monitor behind the interviewee displays a static or moving background image in order to suggest the location, branding or context of the interview. 

We provide live shot studio services in the San Francisco East Bay Area.
We can transmit Live over satellite for single camera interview segments or talk show production formats.  In cooperation with CoverEDGE, the premier nationwide provider of live shot services, we bring nearly four decades of experience to the task.  Our television stage is the perfect venue for any live shot studio requirement.  Leveraging the latest technologies, we connect to all the major television networks and television stations (cable, satellite and OTA broadcast) utilizing Vyvx Centurylink, The Switch, and broadcast satellite via LTN Global.  This transmission workflow replaces the older structure that utilized fiber optic video local loops to deliver low latency high definition HD connections.

Closer to you.
Why drive to San Francisco to do a network interview session when you can enjoy the tranquility of the East Bay in Pleasanton?  Let us take care of the details so you can get things done without the hassle.  The TV stations and networks don’t want you getting stuck in traffic either! Now you can have your San Francisco live shot studio… without the San Francisco.
